Dr. Joo Kwon received his medical degree from the prestigious Catholic University of Korea, one of the most respectable medical schools in Seoul. This was followed by a long list of medical training programmes from the same university, including a graduate program from the Graduate School of Medicine, an internship at the College of Medicine, and a residency at the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Focusing on plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Kwon again took up a graduate program in Plastic Surgery and became a board-certified plastic surgeon.
Over the years, Dr. Kwon has turned his passion into a mission to help other people renew their confidence in themselves. He founded the JK Medical Group and is currently the CEO of JK Plastic Surgery Center, a practice dedicated to providing comprehensive plastic and reconstructive surgical treatments to patients from Korea and all over the world.
Recognized as one of the most important figures in his chosen field, Dr. Joo Kwon is now the Director of the Korea International Medical Association and Chairman of the Korean Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery International. He is also the Director of Gangnam Medical Tourism Association. His exposure to medical tourism has inspired him to make JK Plastic Surgery Centre more welcoming for medical travelers seeking aesthetic procedures in Korea. The JK Plastic Surgery has now gone down in history as the first hospital in Korea to officially serve international patients in 2009. In 2010, it was given the Outstanding Organization in International Medical Service Award. More recently, it was named as the 2014 Best Medical Institution for Foreign Patients in South Korea.
JK Plastic Surgery Center is known as the most reliable place in Seoul, Korea where one can receive the highest level of service and the best quality cosmetic treatments. Combining exceptional service with safe and effective treatments, the clinic has been helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals without compromising safety and comfort. JK Plastic Surgery Centre goes to great lengths to ensure this by providing airport-to-airport service, hiring a multinational customer service staff to assist patients, and providing customized consultation rooms for doctors and patients. The clinic’s team is composed of nine board-certified cosmetic surgeons and a full-time anesthesiologist. The surgeons, who are specializing in different sub-disciplines, allow the clinic to offer a wide range of procedures under one roof. These procedures include Facial Bone Contouring, Anti-Aging, Liposuction, Botox, Hair Transplantation, and cosmetic work for the jaw, breast, eye, and nose, among others. The clinic uses its very own products (Dr JK Cosmeceutical) and industry-approved cosmetic materials including Mentor (US) and Polytech (Germany) implants and BisTool rhinoplasty implants from Korea. Aside from serving patients who require exceptional cosmetic care, the clinic is also involved in the New Face New Dream charity program, which began in 2002 as a local program helping Koreans look and feel better. Now, however, it has grown into an international program with beneficiaries from across the globe.
